Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene Market Estimated to Reach $2.8 Billion by 2027 Globally, at a CAGR of 9.1%, says MarketsandMarkets™

Friday, June 9, 2023 at 2:30pm UTC

Chicago, June 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMW PE) market size is estimated to be USD 1.8 billion in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 2.8 billion by 2027 at a CAGR of 9.1% during the forecast period, as per the recent study by MarketsandMarkets™. The major drivers for the market include increased demand for UHMW PE from the aerospace & defense industry and increased demand for orthopedic implants. However, the availability of substitute act as a challenge for the manufacturers and can hamper market growth. Growth in the mechanical equipment industry and the sports & lifestyle industry throughout the world is providing momentum to the global UHMW PE market. The defense industry demands flexible and ultra-lightweight fibers for armor and ballistic protection which can offer high resistance to flex fatigue, vibration damping, and abrasion resistance compared to traditional threads. This highlights the requirement for materials such as UHMW PE, which, in turn, is expected to drive the UHMW PE market.
